Here are just a handful of some of the inspiring stories from our staff and members who give up their time to volunteer. Read all about what they do, how much time they give and the rewards they get from contributing to great causes around the county.
Volunteering - My StoryJo, Brand and Community Senior Manager, and Lapwing Suffolk fundraiser
Somehow I’ve found myself leaving one office job for another, but the rewards are completely different and totally worth it.
Volunteering - My StoryJoanne, Customer Adviser, friend to dogs and people in need
I think it’s important that we try to make a difference, however little time we have, it’s always worth it, because there are always people who badly need your help.
Volunteering - My StoryTeresa, Compliance Assistant and local school volunteer
I started volunteering as a member of Gorseland School Parents and Friends Association when my children began at the school. I wanted to firstly help the school raise extra funds for those all important extras that are not funded, like sports kit, and playground equipment.
Volunteering - My StoryStacey, Sudbury branch and community policing “street watch” volunteer
One of the ways Ipswich Building Society fulfils its role in society is to allow all staff to spend up to half a day month volunteering. Stacey Bunn joined Sudbury constabulary to assist on its street watch programme.
